I wanted to share with you my recent personal story that prompted me to write this blog. On October 7, 2016, the east coast of Florida was impacted by a major Category 4 Hurricane Matthew. Living in Cocoa Beach, considered to be a barrier island, mandatory evacuations were issued. I began preparation to secure my home and get together all the necessary supplies, needed to survive a storm. Even though news coverage and area authorities were stressing the need to leave the island due to this deadly storm, I was reluctant to leave my home. Now normally I respond quickly and take heed to this warnings, but I had just returned home from a month away. So I made my plan to secure everything and set up my safe place in the center of the house, a downstairs shower. I laid down comforters and padded with lots of pillows, flashlights, radio and a good book to read. A must read, click here to get your copy Ray Higdon, Vibrational Money Immersion.
So I settled in and soon heard the winds start to howl and rain beating hard on the glass doors. As it became louder and louder, I resisted going to take a peak at the window. I could hear objects flying and loud crashes but it was just to dangerous, I couldn’t do anything now. Hours went by and the howling wind and rain was relentless. Crashing and banging off and on, I was so numb and surrounded by a violent force that I just had to wait it out. To say I was scared and feared my life is an understatement. I admitted I had made a huge mistake by not heeded the warning to evacuate. A few more hours past and finally the wind and rain began to subside, I worked up enough courage to peak out the window. There was lots of debris, downed trees and standing water outside. But going through the house I had no damage or water intrusion, so all seemed well. Of course there was no power, but I had made it, survived the storm.
The winds were still blowing really hard, so going outside was not an option. I kept thinking, I’m fine, everything will be fine. I truly believed I will survive. Within a few hours, the winds finally did die down a bit and I was able to walk outside to check for further damage. There was lots of damage, large trees and fences, debris all over the place. And then I turned the corner to see the aluminum carport awning had fallen down crushing my car, oh the shock, when I thought all was fairly in decent shape. The ironic thing is that heavy tar paper and large vent from a high rise building almost a mile away had blew off and landed on top of my carport crushing the car. But I was alive, no one was hurt, and I am living proof. My point in this story is firstly, do not take it lightly when authorities call for evacuations, I admit I made a bad chose. Secondly, if you find yourself in such a situation, Believe that you can make it using caution and determination.
